Our free Saint Miriam Laurie Spiritual Library is dedicated in loving memory to our benefactor, Dorothy Virginia Garman Blankenship Laurie, and is a splendid way to keep current with spiritually centered ideas and practices.

Renee W. Silvers Memorial Garden


Our garden was built by a generous donation from the family of Renee Winter Silvers. Renee was born in Paris, France, in 1925, and grew up about 40 miles away, in Bois-le-Roi. There were two aspects of this small town that loomed large for her: it was clustered on the Seine River, initiating a lifelong love of watery places, and it was surrounded by the huge Foret de Fontainebleau, formerly a king’s hunting preserve, but for her, an inexhaustible source of exploration and discovery.
